Slovakia's numbers remain alarming after the first ten days of the lockdown that the government imposed in an attempt to contain the after-Christmas surge in infections, hospitalisations and deaths.
Nitra district is the worst off in the country at the moment. The director of its hospital says they are barely able to cope with the increasing number of COVID patients and the infected staff who are badly missed at their wards. The city authorities have rented two freezer trucks to deposit the dead bodies, as the capacities of the local burial services are insufficient.
